This is getting silly now. And if the Data Commission hasn't got the good sense to butt out, the law needs to be changed to allow Welfare fraud be investigated.
The issue is that they asked all passengers on certain flights (presumably to Poland or somesuch). That is very difficult to stand up in court - it reeks of profiling rather than intelligence.

They were committing welfare fraud ! That, is a crime.

And how is that profiling, if they ask the same question of everyone on the flight ?

Both lufthansa and AF pay better.
I think you’re talking about pilots specifically? Nowhere near the best paid in the world. What I said was ‘some of the best conditions in Europe’, which they have. Top 3 with as you say, AF and Lufthansa - out of over a hundred in Europe. When you take non salary benefits, working conditions, pension etc into account there’s much of muchness between the top 3.

And now Green Minister of State Joe O'Brien has abstained on the Government bill.

So much for collective responsibility.

Simple message needs to be delivered to them. Accept the democratic decision of their party membership or resign their seats and stand as indos in the subsequent by-election

26 are in County Kildare
18 are in County Dublin
11 are in County Clare
nine are in County Laois
seven are in County Limerick
four in County Meath
Kildare, Dublin and Laois probably related ?

And also Limerick and Clare ?

So Dublin is those construction sites.
Kildare and possibly Laois is the factory

Where are the other 10 cases Cammy?

People are mad though. A lad rang my mate the other day and said 'can't come in have very high temperature'. Now this was after a case in that workplace. So all panicked he is onto the owners and they are coming up with a plan of action and blahdy blah. About an hour after the call he heard two of the staff chatting and one of them said 'don't worry about finishing it X is collecting his computer in about 15 mins'. X being temp guy. In his wisdom he was about to come into the office and have a chin wag and get his fücking laptop. Couldn't get him on the phone and stood at the doorway and they had a stand up row :lol:

Of the cases notified today:

39% of today’s cases are associated with close contacts of a confirmed case
half are associated with outbreaks
89% or so are already traced, that shows the systems are working. So long as the clusters remain managed, you can't lose it over these kinds of numbers.

A larger question needs to be asked of the recent clusters. Notably there hasn't been any cited from hairdressers, pubs, gyms etc. Another meat factory style outbreak today, in line with previous patters. Some from construction sites. Some in Direct Provision centres. It is quite safe to assume a lot of the outbreaks are amongst minorities. This isn't unique, this has happened in Singapore and is also happening in the UK. A variety of reasons I've read that are cited;

- cramped living conditions for many
- inter generational living
- car pooling
- poor communication skills, many hived off into their communities both inside and outside of work
- pressure/motivation to work: I think immigrants are going to be more motivated to work than people from here originally, it's purely anecdotal but it did not surprise me one bit that the new hires for Deliveroo/Uber Eats during the original pandemic were still minorities. They won't just sit around collecting €350, many have pressures beyond that in sending money home
- possible genetic disposition

What the answer is is unknown, possible more randomised testing in those areas of work, the last thing you want is another Leicester. Maybe that's already happening? I read some of the comments from the NPHET and whilst they did the usual and sounded the alarm, I also thought they sounded more comfortable than the other week, saying to wait and see. If they are tracking that many cases earlier on, maybe they're confident in their control infrastructure.

They're not allowed to fish. They have to have intelligence to specifically suggest that you are committing fraud before they ask the questions.

It was a real low. Like that absolute wanker who used to go around on TV3 'exposing' consenting adults having sex parties and making out he was in the room with Jimmy Hoffa being tortured.

Yeah I thought so too . When he pointed out that the statues weren’t representative of slavery he had to listen to some nonsense about them signifying oppression and hierarchy because they were of black women standing outside while white people wined and dined inside. Not sure how you deal with that

The TDs are off on their holliers for 6 weeks. That should allow Martin some time to get the governments ducks in a row again.
